New and a great success in 2018, DCH Teen Camp is an exciting program that is sure to pique the interests of your teen when they feel they have outgrown traditional summer camp. DCH Teen Camp consists of: 2 to 3 bus/walking field trips each week; special guest instructors to cover topics like cooking, robotics, detective work, or zumba; community service/civic engagement in the local area; leadership training and C.I.T. experience with the main summer camp; options for traditional camp activities such as swimming, archery, arts, and sports & games; free time to socialize, use the Teen Camp Clubhouse and add their own activities they can develop weekly with the Teen Camp staff. Personal electronic devices will be allowed at specific times each day for both appropriate personal use and camp projects such as camp publicity videos.

See below for a schedule of Teen Camp field trips for 2019.

Thanks to a partnership with Livable Dedham and the Tufts Health Plan Foundation, this summer some of DCH Teen Camp’s community service and civic engagement will focus on age-friendly initiatives – making our community a great place to grow up and grow old. Campers will learn about our community (and the world’s) aging population and explore solutions to challenges such as transportation, communication, volunteer opportunities, and programs/activities for active older adults.
